Re: March Madness: Watermedia Challenge - TREES!

Thanks for your comments, Kay. By the way, I forgot to vote and I like the idea of glass or fish, or dogs.....

Re: March Madness: Watermedia Challenge - TREES!

Just discovered the Challenge today - love trees - went out back and chose one left by the loggers.
18x24 acrylic/ungessoed kraft paper - paper really soaked up the water and is all buckled, as you can probably see.

Regards,
Trier

Re: March Madness: Watermedia Challenge - TREES!

Gill, great looking gnarled trunk at the bottom.

Salem, good to see Artbar being showcased. It has strong colors. Good contrasts.

Bonnie, really like your first piece, it has so much energy in its loose strokes.

Jamie, what a great loose interpretation. It's almost like it is at the edge of the cliff.

Trier, wow, a tree with character, even its environment. Nice job.

This tree was in the parking lot of the university when the wind was blowing quite hard.

First is prismacolor pencils and artstix




Then when I got home, I did some active brushing with hard brush to soften the strokes
Then Daniel Smith watercolor
Finally some Lyra Watersoluable graphite crayon while surface is still wet

Stillman & Birn Alpha 9x12 inch hardbound sketchbook

Re: March Madness: Watermedia Challenge - TREES!

Trier, I like your curvy tree, so sinuous and commanding as it stands alone.
Sandra you've managed to show how you progressed this windblown tree, so fun the final result.

Re: March Madness: Watermedia Challenge - TREES!

As far as the suggestions go for the next one, due tomorrow, we have these topics:

Glass or reflective
Fish
Birds
Chairs
Dogs

Please take a moment to think what would be appropriate for April and reply to this post so I can get it going as soon as possible. Thanks!

Thank you, Kay.

Fish or chairs are fine.

There is a good variety here and really liked each one for their own special style. Thanks for leading this challenge Kay. Mine is W/N paints, about 3x5 Arches. Thanks for looking....any comments welcome.....


I love these ink and watercolour trees. They almost look like part of a mystical, fantasy landscape... Beautiful
